Bahrain’s investment promotion agency, the Bahrain Economic Development Board (Bahrain EDB), announced its participation in the Singapore Fintech Festival (2-4 November) with the aim to support fintech and financial services companies tap into MENA market through Bahrain.

During the first three quarters of 2022, Bahrain EDB has supported nine financial services companies to setup or expand in Bahrain, generating US$72.7 million (BHD27.5 million) in direct investments. The financial services investments are expected to generate over 840 jobs over the next three years.

Financial services companies attracted by Bahrain EDB include the leading global blockchain services provider Binance, locally grown open Banking company Spier Technologies, and new regional headquarters for Gulf Insurance Group (GIG).

Dalal Buhejji, Executive Director – Business Development for Financial Services at Bahrain EDB, said: “We are delighted to see more and more investors entering Bahrain’s financial services sector, benefiting from a strong and agile ecosystem led by a forward-thinking regulatory body. Financial services is a priority sector for us to grow investments and create jobs, in line with the objectives set out in Bahrain’s Economic Recovery Plan.”

Overall, Bahrain EDB attracted USD921 million (BHD348 million) in direct investment from 66 companies during the first nine months of the year. The investments are expected to generate over 4,700 jobs over the next three years in key sectors, including financial services, ICT, logistics, manufacturing, and tourism.

Bahrain’s financial services sector is the most significant contributor to the Kingdom’s GDP after oil and is the oldest and most established in the region. Today the sector accounts for over 17% of Bahrain’s GDP and employs over 13,600, with Bahrainis representing almost 70%.

Through the Economic Recovery Plan, Bahrain aims to grow the financial services sector’s contribution to GDP to 20% by 2026. The financial services sector development strategy focuses on five main priorities: creating job opportunities, developing capital markets, strengthening legislation and regulatory policies, growing the insurance sector, and developing financial services and fintech.

COTI V2 is revolutionizing blockchain technology with private play through encrypted circuits, offering enhanced speed and efficiency. Currently, the Genesis builder network is live, and the company is inviting developers to join their program. The network supports private play upgrades for Ethereum.

As a privacy-focused Ethereum layer 2 solution, COTI V2 employs advanced encryption technology and encrypted circuits, enabling operations on all devices without compromising personal data.

The primary goal of COTI V2, as outlined in its whitepaper, is to address private play issues on blockchains. Developers can protect privacy through encrypted circuits. The COTI V2 Devnet provides a user-friendly, connectible EVM space (gcEVM) using the Solidity programming language.

Additionally, the COTI V2 network offers developers tools for privacy play with TypeScript and Python SDKs, along with EVM RPC, documentation, a faucet, an explorer, and Hardhat.

COTI has received positive feedback from Civic, a provider of Web3 identification toolkits.

The COTI Foundation plans to launch a privacy-focused growth fund, the ABC Growth Fund, allocating 400 million COTI tokens to provide real-time privacy services.

Developers using the COTI V2 builder network can explore use cases such as confidential DeFi, private payment transactions, stablecoins and RWAs, on-chain data control, confidential AI and machine learning, and decentralized identity recognition.

According to COTI CEO Shahaf Bar-Geffen, the COTI V2 builder and developer program is now available to the public, inviting developers to join the network.
